Freemasonry feared as the 'thalaivetti sangam' (group that decapitates) among some in India

Even as the XII World Conference of Masonic Grand Lodges is being held in Chennai India on November 22 and 23, the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of India Capt. Dr. Balaram Biswakumar regrets the fact that even today Freemasons are feared as the 'thalaivetti sangam' (group that decapitates) among some people here. 
"We want to break this misconception and spread awareness on the precepts of our society," says Biswakumar, a Chennai-based neurologist.

Incidentally this is the second time an international event is being held in the country after the 2001 event was held at Delhi.
